Default Taxi driver just got mugged right now

I live in the Al Bateen area of Abu Dhabi. I just heard just screaming coming from outside my house. I looked out the window and saw two men mugging a taxi driver. He may have been driving them and they may not have paid the fare. By the time I ran out of my house, the two has gone. The poor taxi driver had been punched a few times by the two idiots and was crying. Don't expect something like this to happen here. Perhaps in inner city London, where I'm from, but not here in such a residential place. Anyway, just thought I'd let you guys know. The police are here etc now
